Personal EPIRB

Just an FYI for anyone in the market for a personal EPIRB. West Marine currently has a very popular and affordable model with a $50 rebate through Labor Day. My first inclination was to check other sources and I expected to find that even with the rebate, their price was still higher than most. To m...

Re: Bait Tank?

For all practical purposes, I have a "livewell" on my XF20, about 20 gallons when full. It has a single raw-water pump, plumbed through the transom and a T & H Marine adjustable sprayer. The well has a 1 1/4" overflow at the top, which is not big enough. So I installed an overflow pipe that sticks i...

Re: 2 stroke oil

The Pennzoil is readily available from Walmart and is cheaper than any other brand. Penzoil is what I use. I think it's called "XLF" No is...

Re: Scalloping in Crystal River, FL July 3-6, 2017

We've been at the beach for the last week and half, so I haven't even been on the forum since before then 8) But it looks like you did just fine and figured it out. We scallop up in Dixie County, so we got a little jump start on the action. Went out a few weeks back and did pretty good considering t...

Speaking of queasy, do you know that american red snapper and gag grouper both open on Thursday?
ARS season is a whopping 3 days long.
Yes, and all 3 days are calling for thunderstorms. Those poor ARS are so rare that we caught one in 30' a few trips ago on your boat. :lol:

Re: 2017 Southeast builder's meet

I'm booked for Friday thru Sunday. Might try to add Thursday later on...depending on life... Will bring the XF and park her on the beach as well. I booked a room with 2 queen beds. More than likely, my wife and family will not be joining me, so there may be an extra bed available OR I'd be willing t...

Re: XF20 questions

Hi guys I'm new to the forum. I'm very interested in building the XF20, and I've read Majorgator's build thread. So, first question: why do you build the lattice work frame for the back deck instead of bringing the stringers up to deck height in that area and installing some bulkheads? One of the g...
